Airway Heights will be filled, once again, with the booming sounds of military planes zooming through the sky during the annual Inland Northwest SkyFest Airshow and Open House. This year’s event features aerial acts such as parachute and jump teams and fly-bys. In addition to these aerial acts are 15 stationary aircraft and exhibits for visitors to see and interact with. Included with the stationary exhibits, the open house features a science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM) interactive exhibit, and Hoopfest hoops for attendees to practice for the following weekend’s big event. The event, designed to excite and entertain crowds in an awe-inspiring way, also brings attention to all the work, innovation and skill that goes into the U.S. Air Force.
Sat, June 22 from 9 am-5 pm; aerial acts begin at 1 pm • Free • Fairchild Airforce Base, Airway Heights • fairchild.af.mil/AirShow • 247-1212
